New York (AP) -- Authorities found a suspicious package and evacuated the American Airlines terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday, officials said.
The package was found on the curb at 10:20 a.m., said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The NYPD bomb squad was en route, he said.
It was not immediately clear how many passengers were evacuated or if any flights were affected.
The Port Authority, which operates JFK and LaGuardia airports in New York and Newark Liberty in New Jersey, took "a number of measures as we always do to respond to security situations immediately" after an apparent terrorist attack at the airport in Glasgow, Scotland, Coleman said Saturday.
